What is a Secured Loan?
A secured or homeowner loan is a loan secured against your property. It offers higher loan amounts than unsecured loans, usually up to £100,000 and can be repaid up to a period of 25 years.

A consolidation loan allows you to consolidate your existing borrowing into one single loan and one monthly payment. That may simplify monthly payments, and if you can get the consolidated loan at a lower APR rate than that may save you a bit of money if you are able to keep to the same repayment term.
Short-term fixed rate secured loans
With a short-term fixed rate secured loan, the customer will pay a fixed amount each month throughout the agreed short term (usually between one and five years). After this period, your repayments will then change to your lender’s standard variable rate.
Fixed for term secured loans
With a fixed-for-term secured loan, there is the benefit of unfluctuating payments. The customer will pay a fixed amount every month throughout the agreed term, this in turns help with budgeting for your loan payments.
Variable rate secured loans
As the name suggests, with a variable rate secured loan, the interest you pay can vary over time and therefore your repayment amount can vary each month. The rate can be dependent on the Bank of England base rate or other market forces. If interest rates increase substantially, your repayment amount could be a lot more than you originally budgeted for or, in more extreme cases, be more than you can afford.
